Top German poker-pro, Fedor Holz announced his partnership with PartyPoker through his twitter handle. The move comes as a marketing quest to uplift the profile of the poker site in a bid to overtake PokerStars, which is the top performer as the best place to play poker online.
Fedor tweeted “From this month on I’ll partner with @partypoker. I’m excited about their plans for the future of poker, and I’m happy to be part of it.”
Although, Holz didn’t specify his role in the company, according to the company blog he will be s part “on the global live poker circuit’ he will be an important part in designing “high roller formats for the PartyPoker LIVE MILLIONS and upcoming Online High Roller Series.”
The company faces the greatest challenge from PokerStars which is a very popular online poker brand and boasts of more players than all the other poker sites combined.
Holz is considered to be the younger version of legendary poker player Phil Ivey and the best player in the game today. Holz won more titles last year than players do in their entire life. Despite his wins, he doesn’t intend to play poker full time and took retirement from the game last year.
